Rhythm of Rest

October 31, 2018

All of my guys were unusually irritable and aggravating last week. 

We had a crazy week as a family with near constant on-the-go commitments; there had been little time for rest. It’s impossible to ignore our body’s need for a break — eventually it will shut down on us, sometimes in the form of out-of-control emotions or irrational responses. 

Rest was God’s idea. When He rested on the seventh day of creation, it was to set a pattern for us. When we slow down or shut down, we admit our own limitations and invite God to refuel and sustain us. 

When our emotions are running rampant, when we can’t get them under control, it may be a sign that we’ve been ignoring God’s rhythm of rest. Let’s break the cycle of crazy and build in time to just breath.
